The Eastern European Summer School in Generative Grammar (EGG) will take place in Poznan, Poland from July 27 to August 7, 2009.
Registration is open between May 1 and May 15, 2009.
The school is aimed at students and practitioners at all levels.
Travel and accommodation grants are available for qualified applicants from Eastern European countries.
This year the summer school will be co-organised with Uli Sauerland's COST project (http://www.zas.gwz-berlin.de/cost/), which focuses on semantic and pragmatic effects related to language acquisition and SLI. Therefore, this year's school will again be a thematic one, based on the search for external evidence for linguistic theories, with many classes on various cognitive aspects of language (language acquisition, SLI, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, language & music).

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
